Money Advice Trust Fair Work First statement 2024/25

The Money Advice Trust is fully committed to the Fair Work First principles. We have a recognition agreement in place with Unison and we are committed to working with Unison representatives and colleagues across the charity to provide channels for effective staff representation.

We have an active Learning & Development Policy in place to ensure workforce development.

We do not use zero hours contracts inappropriately, and we are an accredited Living Wage Foundation employer.

We offer a range of family friendly working places for all staff from day one, and we do not and will not use the practice of ‘fire and rehire’.

We have recently developed an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy – with input from staff through our staff-led EDI Forum – and we are committed to both Gender Pay Gap and Ethnicity Pay Gap reporting.

During the course of 2024/25 we are able to commit to further our work in the areas covered by Fair Work First in the following ways:

  • We will continue to implement our new Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, which has been co-developed with staff.
  • We will invest in our debt adviser workforce development by delivering an ongoing training programme to accumulate at least 16 CPD points per adviser annually.
  • We will seek ongoing accreditation as a Fostering Friendly employer and maintain a dedicated Fostering Friendly Policy to ensure the decision to foster does not present a barrier to work or progression, as well as promoting Foster Care Fortnight.
